Sunday Paddles

 Meet at 9:00 AM at Violette's Lock for a run through the old George Washington Canal and back up the C&O Canal.  This is a class I/II whitewater run, usually with no shuttle.

However, in late summer, if the C&O Canal is too low or clogged with river grass, we'll run from Violette's Lock to Pennyfield Lock with a car shuttle.  Any change in meeting place or time will be posted on the CCA Trip Schedule.   Until then, this is a loop trip, so just show up - no need to coordinate with anyone.   That said, if you'd like to be on the mailing list (ca 35 ppl), pls contact  So I can notify our regulars that we're canceling because of high water, foul weather, or moving the meeting point/ meet time to Pennyfield at 8:45.   -  rev. 13 Aug 2017

See the American Whitewater River Database for details of this delightful section of the Potomac River.
